Atlus has reason to celebrate: Catherine sold 200,000 in a week!

After they told us that “Catherine can boast the largest launch in the 20-year history of Atlus” and that the game “has exceeded our highest expectations”, we now can see why they’re so happy. The game sold 200,000 copies in a single week which puts it as one of the best selling Atlus releases in a while. Hope the game sells another 200,000 before the year is over so we can continue to get new IP from the fine folks at Atlus.

    Best cake EVER! good on you Atlus, a fresh breeze to the industry, hopefully we won’t see a sequel and leave it at that that. Catherine is just .. Catherine!

    I haven’t seen the game yet around here, but I’m definitely interested.

    I really happy it’s doing well as I too think it’s a fresh breeze to the industry. Also I support Atlus all the way, they’re one of my favorite publishers.

    Demo was vey fun. Can’t play Blurays right now since my PS3 won’t read them which is why I haven’t had a chance to try the full game.

    @Pedro: Once I’ve got no games PSN games to review hahaha. I think it will be during september. I’ll play games for review up till the last day of August and not take any more reviews for September so I can finally play retail games again after Sony repairs my PS3.

    I wish I could get a cake like that. I have my copy of the Catherine but I haven’t opened it yet. Very happy to see such a supposed niche game would sell so much in a week.

    @mowmow: Regular or CE for Catherine?

    Congrats Catherine! I picked up the standard pre-order, I would’ve taken the CE but i’m a fatty. And those clothes wouldn’t fit. I’m gonna miss the pillowcase though 🙁 O well……

    This game looks interesting. I have talking to my friends at EB and they are saying it has sold very well for not being a major title.

    After I’m done my backlog of games maybe I will give this one a shot.

    @The_Nmac: I would agree with you on the “get the backlog done before buying more games”… but Atlus needs us! Atlus, Xseed, Ignition and NISA should ALWAYS be supported ASAP since their games tend to sell 100-200k TOTAL and NOT 200k 1st week as was the case with Catherine. If you’ve got the $$$ then do us all a favor and go and buy a copy of Catherine to increase our chances of more quirky “They really are releasing this over here? Great!” games making their way to us.
